, we join president barack obama, secretary of state hillary rodham clinton, democratic leader nancy pelosi and expensive network of people in saluting ambassador chris stevens who will be remembered for his strong sense of dignity, his humility and his generous service to others. he will be truly missed by all who loved him and by all he served throughout the magnitude of his life's work. thank you for this honor. [applause] >>> members of christopher stevens family, ladies and gentlemen, let me first thank chris stevens' brothers and sisters for their warm and delightful insights into what he was really like. thank you so much. that was fantastic what you did for us. christopher stevens was obviously an extraordinary human being and contributor. every year at stanford we have a group of what we call national security fellows come. they were roughly army, navy, air force, state department. a couple weeks ago we had a meeting and the first person i called on was an army colonel. i said where were you last? he said in libya. i said did you know christopher stevens? he said everybody k
important the storm was is that there were only two states in the country where obama actually increased his vote share from 2008. otherwise he went down, of course. and one was alaska because palin wasn't on the ticket and the other was new jersey where i performed two points better than he did in 2008. so obviously the impact of the storm was enormous. and in the exit polls, 15% of the voters said it was the number one factor, and 40-something percent said it was an important factor. the other one is more serious, which is the demographic changes in the country. i think i always said on your show, and maybe you also have that tape where i said that if the demographic turnout is the same as these pollsters are saying, of course obama is going to win. but then i said in the next sentence but it won't be because of the high unemployment, and disillusion meant with obama. but i was wrong. it was exactly the same and with young people even higher than it was in 2008. and this reflects a permanent demographic change in the united states. it is no longer a country run by white married men and mar
to implement obama-care. states only have until friday--this friday to say how they're going to enact obama-care if the federal government--if they don't do it, the federal government will step in to do it for them. so for perspective on that issue i'm joined by mother jones reporter andy kr oh oll joining us by scape from ready ford, virginia. welcome in "the war room"." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: describe for people what exactly is that these states have to set in motion by friday. >> very simply, it's a website where you can go to, an array of options, a menu of health insurance plans that you as a consumer can pick from. you can pick out the price. you can pick out the options like you would on a car. you you do you have extra added benefits or do you pare back your benefits. the choice is yours. s options are there and you buy it there and then based on who is in your area. >> jennifer: it's an effort to create private sector market. it's there to make it easy for people. describe what happens if governors of these states refuse to enact the exchanges. >> we've had a number
which as you know is a great state named after the great pendulum has gone most supporting barack obama. [crowd cheering] >> jon: the electoral vote. obviously that was a state that mitt romney at the very end made a play for, but the amish don't play that. good news from mitt romney he has won tonight making announcements right now most of the confederacy. he's the winner there. a lot of the electoral votes. michigan, 15 electoral votes it's mitt romney's, one of mitt romney's home states. most presings reporting, we're going to call that for barack obama. [crowd cheering] it's a shame that that car pulled out right by that. we've got an interesting senate race to report. there's a lot of attention on this race in massachusetts. there was a yuk ma young man nad scott brown versus a gentlewoman named elizabeth warren, she has won the senate race. [crowd cheering] oh. going overboard buy his own tea partyers. right now the big state we're looking at is ohio because it's really the only state we've ever been looking at. and florida is, and again we are live so i don't know if this is oka
lost in michigan? >> that is really odd. not just michigan. look at wisconsin. both states obama won. in wisconsin the unions lost half a year ago with the governor walker's recall. and it is just going to show that democratic voters may be voting for obama, they may be voting democrat but they're not voting for unions. and that's the union's main base and if they can't get democrats to vote out for their issues they have serious problems nationally. david: vincent, we'll come right back to you. we have breaking news on this amd story. robert gray, want to go right back to it. go ahead. >> that's right, david. we reported before the closing bell, reuters reported that amd was perhaps putting itself up for sale and hired jpmorgan chase to explore options. "wall street journal" says amd is not pursuing the sale of the company or significant assets. that stock jumped up as much as 12, 13% as we headed into the closing bell. you can see giving back some of that in after-hours trading. at the same time we've seen shares of intel sliding to the lowest since september of 2011. apparently tr
it to the senate. president obama carried the state. there were questions about that before the election. what does this mean for bob mcdonald and the republicans in virginia? >> the next big race in virginia is next year. the governor's race trying to pick someone to succeed. and if you look just at last tuesday's results in virginia, you would think that the democrats are a lock. they won the u.s. senate seat. they won for president obama. romney lost in virginia. so that would imply that the republicans should nominate, they have two choices. nominate the very conservative tea party, the attorney general or nominate the more established conservative, bill bowling. last tuesday 's result they want to have a chancehey would nominate the more moderate guy. the tea party guy, he's got a lock on the nomination i think. he's the strong favorite right now. it's going to be a party convention that picks the nominee for the republicans and tends to be dominated by activists, the base people who are most enthusiastic. >> i'm sorry. >> but also the point is that the electorate in off year elections is much
and the winner in the state of florida was, hit the board, president obama. according to florida's results, it was about as close as you could get without triggering an automatic recount. president obama winning 50% of the vote compared to 49% for mitt romney. so president obama with 332 electoral vote. ultimately the decisive thing ant florida was not who florida voted for. it was the state becoming a showcase for the unreasonable lengths of time people had to go to to exercise their right to vote. florida's republican-controlled legislature cut down early voting days by almost half. rick scott broke with even republican tradition and refused to extend early voting hours even in the face of six to seven-hour lines in the state. now that florida's electoral college votes have been allocate ed, he's ready to address the state's problem saying "i have asked the secretary of state to review this and report on ways to improve the process after all the races are certified. as part of this, he will meet with county election supervisors, especially those who ran elections where voters experienced
tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an immediate political question for the democrats as to what happens to his u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. senator kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. the post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terroris

departure of general david petraeus from the cia tells us more about the state of our nation than a dozen petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kin

of blue states in there that voted for obama. at the other end of the scale are people that are in poor states, in the south and southwest. those states will see a big tax increase and largely because they benefit from a lot of things like the child tax credit, many refundable credits, a payroll tax cut would be most disproportionate to them. lori: i said the child tax credit is your claim to fame. do you think that will continue? >> i do think so. we ought to worry about the fact that so much of it is refundable which means even if you don't pay any income tax you still get a tax rebate from the irs and the irs is giving out $100 billion the year in refundable tax credits. i look to that to be a big part of the negotiating between the white house and republicans. should we put these people back on the tax roll, part of that 47% that no longer pay income tax? lori: what is the worst-case scenario if we get the fiscal cliff? >> it would be terrible. we have done the economic modeling on this. we see this would have a severe impact on long-term economy, about the equivalent of four hurric
